IN THE INDUSTRY
Offshore and Onshore Reliability Data Project Goes Digital
Vast amounts of offshore and onshore reliability data will be made available as the project by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate provides acces to its now-digital data in an effort to improve accessibility and efficiency for oil and gas industry reliability data.
Digitalization is Changing Offshore Operations
Adoption of digital technologies will continue to improve the offshore sector, including improved well efficiency, real-time directional drilling, lower maintenance costs, and safer operations.
Digital Data Drives HSE Behavioral Safety Program
Behavior-based safety is not a new concept nor is it new at Murphy Oil. But when Murphy launched its Safety Observation Program as a digital tool, it revitalized the way the culture of safety spread throughout the company.
Data Science vs. Decision Science
Data science and decision science are related but still separate fields, so, at some points, it might be hard to compare them directly. This article attempts to show the commonalities, differences, and specific features of data science and decision science.
Bias Can Cause Machine Learning To Stumble
Machine learning (ML) finds patterns in data. "AI bias" means that it might find the wrong patterns. Meanwhile, the mechanics of ML might make this hard to spot.
Data as Prior/Innate Knowledge for Deep Learning Models
Rapid advances in deep learning continue to demonstrate the significance of end-to-end training with no a priori knowledge. However, when models need to do forward prediction, most AI researchers agree that incorporating prior knowledge with end-to-end training can introduce better inductive bias.
Artificial Intelligence Can Reduce ESP Failures
Electrical submersible pump technology predominates the artificial lift options available to onshore and offshore operators for maximizing production.
Machine Learning Optimizes Duvernay Shale-Well Performance
This paper discusses how machine learning by use of multiple linear regression and a neural network was used to optimize completions and well designs in the Duvernay shale.
ABS Unveils Guide for Using Smart Technology in Marine and Offshore Industries
The first set of notations of its kind helps owners and operators qualify and use smart functions to manage asset health and performance.
Microsoft Launches Drag-and-Drop Machine Learning Tool
Microsoft announced three new services that aim to simplify the process of machine learning—an interface for a tool that automates the process of creating models; a new no-code visual interface for building, training, and deploying models; and hosted Jupyter-style notebooks for advanced users.
Researchers Want To Study AI the Same Way Social Scientists Study Humans
Maybe we don’t need to look inside the black box after all. Maybe we just need to watch how machines behave, instead.
Neural Networks Plus CFD Speed Up Simulation of Fluid Flow
High-fidelity 3D engineering simulations are valuable in making decisions, but they can be cost-prohibitive and require significant amounts of time to execute. The integration of deep-learning neural networks with computational fluid dynamics may help accelerate the simulation process.
